If you follow the blog, you know I’m against most industry stuff – most of it is rhetoric to hold up the status quo … and that status quo is trainers getting jerked around in the big gyms, making less than 30 grand a year, and forced to abandon PT and go into other boring careers – all in a career that pays on average, 75 bucks an hour – in my mind, that’s not going to cut it anymore … But one magazine that really “gets” training at its best is Personal Fitness Professional Magazine.  They’re the only mag that I really pay attention to, and the only one that I’d consider writing for.   This credit has to go to the editor Shelby Murphy.  She just put up a real cool video on the PFP home page called Stepping Up.   I found it excellent because just like the magazine as a whole, Shelby “gets it” too – she’s calling for us to pursue our absolute highest dreams and view Personal Training as part of that larger mission – here’s her video: Ha! Not what you usually hear, huh?  That one really got me psyched and thinking big! Here’s the […]

People’s interest in becoming a personal trainer is increasing rapidly as more and more people are getting fat. As a matter of fact, even i want to be a personal trainer myself. Another reason that drives the public interest toward the personal training field is their need to keep in shape. If you are like me who want to become a trainer, then, it is a must that you develop an interest in working with people. The very first thing that I learned from my personal trainer friends is that if i want to be a trainer, I should not be shy when working with people. Way back in the 30’s, late Jack Lalanne was one of the first personal trainers who was very much ahead of his time. Indeed, he is a visionary. I decided that I want to become a personal trainer because of him. He believed in the fact that there are many problems in this world that could be solved with proper exercise and good nutrition. I became more interested in him when I have learned that he promoted weight training through there are many doctors in his time who are against it. He had recruited […]

Being always at a gym with my friends working out, I developed an interest in the fitness training field. Because I have many friends who used to work out every day in our local health clubs, I started to like the idea of becoming a personal trainer. Then, I told myself that if I want to be a personal trainer. I want to take this career. The main reason why I want to be a personal trainer is because I enjoyed going to the gym regularly. I did not think about having a good source of income or improving my fitness. This is because I really don’t have any idea about the salary of a professional personal trainer. I did not even know that the personal training career is in great demand today and that there are a lot of people these days who are making good money out of it and that it is not that hard to become one. Only now did I have an idea about these things when I became serious about becoming a professional personal trainer. Before I decided that I want to become a personal trainer, I asked many personal trainers I know about […]
